Randy Cornelius has been doing leatherwork most of his life. He was introduced to Leathercraft in grade school some 40 years ago where he made his first set of saddlebags which he still has today. Randy started making things out of necessity, being around horses all his life, he started making horse gear and tack along with other necessities like belts, billfolds and other personal items. He branched out making things for friends, co-workers and family until it became the business it is today.
Being in law enforcement he became adapt in making law enforcement gear and gun leather along the way. Randy takes pride in making quality leather items that last many years and in some cases a lifetime. He uses only quality American made leather and the finest hardware available. Every item is custom made to order to suit the customer’s needs. He has a complete modern saddle shop where everything is made right at his home. Anything from a custom made saddle to purses, belts, wallets and everything in between is hand made by Randy, nothing is outsourced. Custom repairs of all kinds are gladly accepted. Attention to detail and a quality product is his goal.
Randy has won many awards on the international level competing against other leathercrafters around the world.
